According to a new U-M study, electronic dating violence—including electronic harassment, coercion, and monitoring—starts increasing in preadolescence but curves as teens reach young adulthood. The study looked at the three behaviors in students in two age groups (12-15 and 15-18) to determine how they experienced electronic dating violence. Elyse Thulin, a Ph.D. student at the School of Public Health and co-author of the study, details key findings and provides context for her team’s research. Thulin highlights the importance of understanding the risks for adolescents of online interactions.
